A somewhat mad reporter who has worked for various publications over the years, and occasionally ventures over to North Africa on the lookout for his next big scoop.
One assignment was to write a feature about desert nomads and he approached a potential source of material:
The Nomad: I hope you don’t work for one of those ‘Kiss and Tell’ papers.
Headline Harry: Certainly not!
The Nomad: What's your paper called?
Headline Harry (looking embarrassed): The ‘Snog and Snitch Gazette’.
Headline Harry's first appearance in August 1984
He’s called ‘Headline Henry’ in the Italian Beep Peep books.
